You may dislike the NRA, with good cause, but how is "backed by the NRA" "taking credit for things"?
I also "back" the Virginia bills. Does that mean I'm taking credit?
I also back your right to express your opinion about the NRA. Is that taking credit for your opinion?
I have a daughter. I tell her, "911 is what you dial after you're raped. 1911 is what you should have before they try."
